It’s as if the lake were blue
the sky
as if their bodies
had a form outside
the one imagined.
Will that be good enough
for me
for now?
To smooth myself into
a reflective surface
a receptive medium
that recedes from all
attempts at impression
that encourages
flotation
flight.
Encourage—too strong a word—back up
rays of light absorbed
or bent back
(there’s so much I don’t know)
until this one remains
(for those with eyes to see it)
let’s call it—why not?—
blue.
 
S. Robbins from Pilgrimage, Meditations on the Svadhisthana Chakra
